Pray for the Nations

I was thinking about writing a blogpost to pray for a specific country at least once a month. This month, January, will be India.
Someone  I know went to India a few years ago, and this week, she is back there serving the Lord.
According to Voice of the Martyrs, India: is the world’s largest democracy and the second most populous country, behind China. It is a highly diverse country, with a multitude of languages, cultures and religions. The social and political structures in India are largely determined by religion, caste and language. Despite India’s increasing presence in the global economy, the vast majority of the rural population remains impoverished. India is the birthplace of Hinduism and has the second largest Muslim population in the world, after Indonesia, with 14 percent of its 1.2 billion people claiming that affiliation.

Religion: Hindu 74.3%, Christian 5.8%
Ideology: Hinduism

Pray for my friend, H, and that God may be glorified through what she and her team does.
